    I worked at Red Hat full-time (more than 3 years)


    Red Hat allows you to work on anything you are passionate about with complete freedom. If you are passionate about opensource, this is the place. There are lot of smart people, from whom you will learn a lot. The best part is, you will get to be part of some opensource community officially, meet more awesome people from the community regularly interact with them and work with them during your office hours.


    Compensation is bit less compared to competitors, but if you enjoy your work, that matters less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire middle management who knows what opensource values are and whats the importance of engineers.
